Here’s the next crazy BBE deal at Amazon. This is the BBE Frequency Boost, which is a vintage treble boost pedal. If you want to get that retro 70’s distortion, this is pretty sweet. It gives a mid-high boost, which can help you cut through the mix for leads or rhythm parts. I’m not seeing this pedal listed at the BBE web site or at Musician’s Friend, so this could be a discontinued line. So if you want one, this could be your only opportunity to get a new one.
Here is the official description:
The Freq Boost is patterned after a rare Treble Booster of the mid-’60s that gave many famous players the ability to add sustain, fatten and overdrive their favorite guitar amplifier. Robust build quality and rugged engineering ensure that the Freq Boost will stand up to the abuse of life on the road. Other features include hardwire bypass, LED operation indicator, non-slip rubber bottom, easy-access 9v battery compartment and included external power supply.
This pedal normally lists for $149.00, but is currently on sale at Amazon for $55.54 and includes FREE super saver shipping. So that’s basically $100 off, not too shabby.
I found this video from BBE that goes through various BBE pedals, but the Freq Boost is demo’d at 3:53 of the clip.
